The Lagos State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has denied knowledge of one Adejumo Mansour Agbaje as a leader of the Party in the State. This was contained in a statement released by its publicity secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, on Sunday.
Mr Gani warned that “Adejumo Mansour Agbaje does not represent the interest of its members in the state”, insisting that “such a person is definitely on a frolic of his own probably to gain media attention or for pecuniary interest.
“Such a person is a mole in the PDP who should henceforth desist from attempts to embarrass the Party.
The state chapter of PDP further noted that “while it appreciates the right of any Nigerian to aspire for any office in the land”, adding that “the President is eligible to seek re-election under our Constitution and indeed has achieved well enough to guarantee the success of the PDP at the coming presidential elections.
“We reiterate our conviction in the ability of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan to win the presidential election for PDP. We condemn any subterranean move to blackmail our chapter against Mr President. Our support for Mr President is untainted and irrevocable. Ride on Mr President”, the statement added.
On Thursday, September 18, the National Executive Committee of the ruling party endorsed President Jonathan as its sole presidential candidate in the 2015 general election.
The decision by the PDP executive committee leaves the coast clear for President Jonathan to contest without opposition by any member of the party.
